Supershed with glazed elevation to display brewing process celebrates theatrical aspects of the output at new visitor attraction
Guy Hollaway Architects for Chapel Down
Contract value: undisclosed
Designed for a rapidly growing UK wine company, Curious Brewery quadruples the brand’s output while creating a new visitor attraction with guided tours, tastings, a shop, 100-seat restaurant and bar. Set in the heart of the town near Ashford International Station, a supershed houses a complex technical fit out and a 15m HGV turntable for efficient flow of trucks. Inside, the theatrical aspects of brewing are celebrated, a 10m by 6m high glazed elevation displaying the process. The ‘curious’ black facade matches the brand while grain and yeast silos hint at the activity within.
